NASHVILLE, Tenn. —

Queen Elizabeth's youngest son, Prince Edward, has visited Tennessee to promote one of the British royal family's charities, the Duke of Edinburgh's Award.

The prince presided over an awards ceremony Thursday at the governor's mansion for the first batch of young Tennesseans to participate in the leadership and character program. He quipped that the participants were "how should I put this - guinea pigs," and then said, "So you're leading the way here."

About 80 youths received the award by participating in community service, skills development, physical fitness and adventurous journeys through organizations such as the Boy Scouts, Boys and Girls Clubs and Miss Tennessee Scholarship Organization.

The Duke of Edinburgh's Award is a self-development program for people ages 14 to 25 that aims to instill confidence and skills.
